Matthew Schaefer is a singer/songwriter living in Los Angeles. After graduating from Indiana University Jacob’s School of Music, he released his first self-titled studio album.

In his music, Matt weaves witty pop culture references with piano interludes. His lyrics are very true to life and I would bet anything that halfway through the CD you’ll catch yourself singing along. Ben Folds fans will love his music, but most would say he’s giving Ben Folds a run for his money.

Matthew has performed for large audiences in New York, Chicago, and LA. At his last performance in Chicago, Matt debuted Mistletoe Song at Goose Island. It’s one of my favorites!

Matthew has also written songs for CBC Commercial spots and for Hallmark Corporation. You can currently find Matt “living, working, and making it work” in LA.

His next show is at Bar Lubitsch in Los Angeles on March 16th. You can find information on this event on his Facebook Fan Page. Feel free to tell your friends, if you like!

He is also beginning his “Dirty Laundry Tour,” which will take place at various laundromats throughout the Los Angeles Metro Area.
